1. Gather succulents.

First, you’ll need to gather succulents. (Buy succulents in bulk here!) We love the miniature succulents above (I’ve decided succulents are even 10x cuter in miniature form) but there are many sizes of succulent cuttings available via JIMMZ, for example.

2. Add soil.

Add potting soil to small mason jars (similar decorative jars can be found here or here).

3. Add twine + a tag.

Wrap your choice of ribbon or twine around the jar, tied to a simple favor tag.

4. Display.

Use as escort cards and display at one central table or place at each guest’s seat as a place card / favor all-in-one.

Happy Planning!
